Vinification: An elegant, complex, full-bodied and well strucured wine, produced from selected, best Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from terraced vineyards. Careful handling of grapes and must. Maceration: Eighteen days in oak containers in contact with strawberry skins. Final fermentation in barriques. Fermentation takes place with grapes own yeasts. Barrels: barriques made to our order from Slovenian oak, selection. Naturally dried, selected grapes of the Merlot variety are fermented and matured specially in barriques Aging: Five years in 225-liter oak barrels (barriques), according to the natural process. Maturation continues after bottling. Tertiary aromas develop over subsequent years. The wine is not filtered. 

Characteristics: Deep, dark ruby ​​color. After longer maturation, it acquires a brick red color with ruby ​​shades. A noble, intense wine flower full of spice and balsamic notes. Complex aromas of ripe fruit, cherry marmalade, cherries in liqueur, licorice, aromatic herbs, nuances of mint and pepper gradually transition into "goudron" aromas. In the mouth, the wine has a full and lively taste that fills the palate with its density and elegant tannic texture and ends with a persistent and wonderfully noble aftertaste. A luxurious, full-bodied wine. The Muse reaches its maximum expression in the first twelve years, and then, under suitable storage conditions in the bottle, exceeds seventeen years and more. The rich structure and harmony of aromas gain complexity, elegance and noise with years of maturation. Due to the appropriate micro-terroir and the natural method of production, the wine maintains its freshness, fruitiness, fullness of taste and vitality.
